How much does their CEO make?

Saw this for myself waay to close to home. They took away my FIL’s call button, phone and water, completely out of reach because he was “too demanding”. Thank goodness we got him out in time.

This is what happens when we love our family members, but not enough to care for them ourselves. Read the book “the 36 hour day” if you want to know how to take care of your elders. Mine are gone now, and I am grateful for the care I gave.

Can’t say I’m surprised. In our society our chief utility is economic. We are only as valuable as what we can contribute economically.

The elderly are no longer contribute much. Their dependents can contribute on their behalf for a while but it doesn’t take much for the balance sheet to become unattractive.

At which point the company cuts it losses, because the elderly are a loss on a ledger sheet and so must be removed somehow.

It’s a classic example of reason without ethics.

I grew up with a sick Father who had us at an advanced age. My brother and I spent our youth wondering if our Dad would be alive the next day.

By the time we were in our early 20’s he had lost both legs and we were unable to care for him ourselves any more. My aunts and uncles tried to help but they were all even older then him.

He eventually had to go into assisted living. What we went through in these places (including Hospitals) to get him proper care and dignity before he died I do not wish on any one.

I realized how few doctors in the profession any more actually care.

Playing With AI-Generated “Art”I haven't really explored NightCafe's free online AI Art Generator (creator.nightcafe.studio) tool yet. I have only done some preliminary tinkering around with it but, I have to say, I'm more impressed with the results than I anticipated considering how little ...

Indigenous Americans Ruled Democratically Long Before the U.S. DidDemocracy: it was older and more widespread than we thought. At the Oconee site, called Cold Springs, artifacts were excavated before the valley became an aquatic playground. Now, new older-than-expected radiocarbon dates for those museum-held finds push back the origin ...
